    So I've been getting Spam IMs from MS IM on my phone. THere are 2 senders...one I've been getting since before my Lumia and the other just started(the more lude of the 2)
    How do I get rid of these? I would hate for one of these to pop up when my girlfriend is using my phone...or worse yet someone's kid!

    I've repeatedly reported the first spam IM but that hasn't worked...and I can't seem to catch the second IMer on the internet...only seem to get it on my phone.

    Please help.
    Thanks

    Dang Board Express. This took three tries. Anyway, can't you simply block the sender, assuming it's IM.

    Sent from my Lumia 900 using Board Express Pro

    Both are coming from Windows Messanger. I've tried to block the one I can catch when I'm on my computer...but can't find a way to block it. Second one I've only received on my phone...don't know how to block from there.

    If it was a text message you could reply with all caps "STOP" and your phone service provider will unsubcribe you.

    Never do this with spam text messages. All you're doing is confirming your number is active so they can send you even more spam. Only if the text is from a genuine service you've signed up for somehow, then you can use the STOP reply.

    If AT&T is your carrier, forward the spam SMS to 7726 (SPAM).
